In the windows: Mignon Faget believes in the beauty of the south

From Sea and Tulips to Hive and Louisiana many of Mignon’s designs are inspired by nature.  The beauty of nature, specifically the beauty of the south, is the theme behind our spring windows.

Spring in the south is full of all things green, moss, blossoms and leaves blooming.  We used live moss sheets paired with various artificial green plants to create a terrarium like environment for our canal place gallery windows.

Inspired Exploration: Visit The Ogden Museum of Southern Art

The Ogden Museum of Southern Art is housed in “one of the most architecturally significant complexes in the South”. Because of this, the building has been and remains an enormous influence for Mignon in many of her pieces, specifically the Romanesque Return collection. The library building, a part of the museum, is the historic Howard Memorial Library, designed by the famous architect Henry Hobson Richardson.

HHRichardson-Library

Mignon based Romanesque Return on the Henry Hobson Richardson library’s architectural elements, particularly the voussoirs, medallions and engaged columns from the fireplace, and carved stone figures of the beast of ignorance and the beast of knowledge carved throughout. The Beast of Ignorance Chained bracelet forms an eloquent commentary on the library’s purpose: to educate the public and abate ignorance.  Mignon notes, “I found myself deconstructing Henry Hobson Richardson’s intricate architectural details and miniaturizing them as jewelry”.

LUZ: Bridal by Mignon

IntrotoLuz

Mignon believes that there is nothing more luminous than a bride on her wedding day. LUZ, Mignon’s latest collection is her first foray into bridal jewelry and accessories. The collection is inspired by vintage insertion lace and features freshwater pearls, white topaz, and intricate detailing.

Mignon says, “One of my favorite memories of my wedding day is my mother placing a strand of pearls around my neck. I remember being surrounded by my family, brimming with excitement about becoming a wife. My newest collection, Luz was designed to create memories like these, lasting memories on one of the most important days of a woman’s life. Luz is the Spanish word for light. I chose it to describe this collection because I believe it represents the glow that surrounds a couple on their wedding day, a couple about to embark on one of the most magical adventures of their lives.”
